Hidekichi Miyazaki, 105-years young, set the new record as the world’s oldest competitive sprinter. The Japanese man ran a 100 meter-dash in 42.22 seconds at the Kyoto Masters. At the September 23 event, Miyazaki also competed in the shot-put.

Miyazaki took up sprinting in his 90s. Until recently, he held the world record for the fastest 100-meter dash in the 100+ age group.

Miyazaki’s daughter told CNN that he practices every day in the park near his house. He does a 100 meter run and practices the shot put three times during practice.

Miyazaki told CNN he likes to pose in Usain Bolt’s trademark pose, “because it’s cool”.
